review: oribe bright blonde shampoo & conditioner for beautiful colour

Being a bottle blonde I like to keep my blonde hair looking bright and sparkly. I use a tonning shampoo and conditoner a couple of times per month to keep my colour looking it’s best. Oribe (pronounced or-bay) if you didn’t already know is a Session Stylist from Miami based in New York, he’s a pretty cool dude you should look him up, anyway on to the products…

Oribe’s Bright Blonde Shampoo and Conditioner for Beautiful Colour do exactly what they say they will do. The packaging is their iconic bottles (designed by Versace) and the smell of these violet hue products are of course Oribe’s signature scent “Côte D’azur” which you can buy as a hair perfume aerosol or as an Eau De Parfum to wear on your skin.

This shampoo and conditioner has the same performance as their amazing Beautiful Colour range but with added violet pigments to cancel out yellow or brassy tones to blonde/grey or brunette hair restoring it to it’s most brilliant self. Of course it is free of sulphates, parabens, sodium chloride, gluten and animal testing.

After using theses my hair is instantly hydrated and sparkly bright blonde. I tend to use occasionaly however, you can use as your regular shampoo.conditioner as they contain clever technology that prevents pigmentation build up.

They are luxury hair products on the inside and out which reflect the price point starting from £39, in my opinion they are totally worth it and look stunning in your bathroom or on your dressing table. Just to add they are packaged in beautiful embossed cream boxes which look pretty but not really necessary. Oribe

PUREOLOGY® Strength Cure – serious colour care!

Woking in a salon I’m lucky to get the odd freebie from time to time. Last week we were all treated to a Pureology gift bag set for our efforts in selling retail. If I’m honest the gift bag itself isn’t really my thing, but the actual product inside…well let’s just say I’m in LOVE!

IMG_2937.JPGThe smell is gorgeous the colour is a bright pinkish colour. The smallest amount foams up a treat
(I know shampoo doesn’t have to foam to clean the hair but it’s oh so satisfying when it does) it contains antifade complex and treats micro scarred or damaged colour treated hair (my hair is all of the above, so I may of found my match)

IMG_7360.JPGHere’s a clever idea, the lid for the shampoo is at the top of the bottle and the lid for the conditioner is at the bottom of the bottle. So although the bottles are the same shape/colour they are easy to work out while your in the shower and not quite awake yet!

IMG_7359.JPGImpressively these products are 100% vegan and sulphate free. Here’s the science bit…

The shampoo; Gives your hair strength, reduces breakage and brings softness to every hair on your head. It will strengthen the fibre in your hair and remove dull residue.
Featuring Pureology’s Antifadecomplex and Asta-Repair, the Strength Cure rich foam cleanser controls the look of frizz, whilst helping to repair and strengthen micro damaged zones.

The conditioner; Working to detangle, strengthen, and condition it is the ideal product to look after your hair. With its opulent Pureology Antifadecomplex and Asta-repair formula, the conditioning product helps to improve hair’s shine and softness, whilst protecting colour radiance between every wash.
Aiming to improve body, smoothness, and suppleness the conditioner helps repair the micro damaged zones by enveloping strands in a smooth coating of Strength Cure conditioner.

The Verdict
I’m totally sold and would definitely purchase these products, though they are rich and seem like they will last forever they do not weigh down my fine straight over processed blonde hair. They do the opposite and give my hair fullness and bounce with a shine.

My Conclusion
I’ve been using these for one week and yes ok I’ve had a few inches cut off my hair which helps, but I can definitely feel and see an improvement with the condition of my hair which is often ironed flat each morning to remove my crash helmet kinks before I start work.

Anyone else tried any products from the fabulous pureology range?
